Terrafugia's Transition flying car makes it's debut at the New York City Auto Show beginning April 6th at the Javits Center. As a kid growing up and watching "The Jetsons," I figured we all would have flying cars by now. The Terrafugia Transition is street legal and recently completed it's first successful test flight. The company says the vehicle-turned-airplane will be available for sale by the year's end. If you're like me and can't help but think that you've already seen a similar vehicle in Flint, keep reading.

An older version of a flying car made an appearance at last summer's Sloan Auto Fair in Flint. While the new version is more sleek and can be parked in a normal sized garage, there are some similarities (like the rear propeller) to the original.

The Terrafugia Transition is priced at $279,000 and the company says they already have orders for 100.

Had I won the Mega Millions jackpot last week, I probably would have splurged on a couple of these. If you happen to have an extra $279K laying about, you can get one. www.terrafugia.com
